A furry-faced, stereotypically absent-minded, pipe smoking professor.
The average is a nice ball park figure…. but there will still be for greater accuracy the need to think about dates that are roughly nine months prior that lend themselves to a greater than typical rate of “proclivities” of course. :) Major holidays where most folks have time off of work, major snowstorms where folks are snowbound, Valentines Day and such venues tend to result in more births nine months later. :)
It is all well and good for Tiffany to move into a triple… but
1. It is already a sizable chunk through the semester…. so it seems unlikely at best at this time.
2. How on Earth will Tiffany deal with TWO roommates????
Moving in with Les and Gunther is, though, much, much worse!!!!!! PLEASE NO!!!!!
Impressive editing, Sluggo!
Drawing is decent.
Writing….. descending further into frivolous and overly ancillary subject matter.
Not a particularly entertaining read today.
While I do not do this with my mustache and beard these days…. I actually like my grey…..
I do admit, back when I first grew my beard and mustache way, way, back when I was a young pup of 19…. I did once use mascara on my mustache to take a picture of myself….. because initially my mustache grew in blond back then. When I was 19… the hair on my head was so dark a brown it was close to black in color. But, my beard was a mix of dark browns, light browns and reds…. which was “ok” but I was annoyed at the blond mustache.
I only used the mascara once, though. And fortunately, my mustache did darken about two years later.
A good, albeit obvious response from Bets. Les and Gunther are skeptical…. but hell, this may really be Tiffany’s awakening moment and she truthfully starts to become her own person instead of the “spoiled rich-kid, glam-girl” she originally started out to be.
But…. I hope very much for a few caveats in this story…….
a) PLEASE, do not have Tiffany move to the Gulag.
b) PLEASE, do not have Tiffany and her roommate become the “girl version” of the already overplayed Unger/Madison concept that seems to be the primary roles for Gunther and Les these days.
c) Bets would be good as a roommate….. but is that too obvious a choice? And, at this point in the academic, unless Bets lives off campus…. she might already have the full potential occupancy in her dorm room.
d) Sadly…. it seems likely that Tiffany (at this point in the semester) would mostly have only options to live off campus. I do not think many universities will have folks in the dorm seeking to add a roomate this late after the semester has began. This also has me wondering…. if Tiffany moves out of the dorm…. would there be a penalty? And, if there is any money to return…. would it go to Tiffany or go to slimy ’ole, Tom (Cat) Ferrell?
Now…. I know this is just a pipe dream , but…. I think it would be quite interesting…. and perhaps is even “comedy ensues – ish” if this were to happen next Summer…… Luann is transfering to Mooney…. she decides to live in the dorms and takes a random roommate…. and…. so does Tiffany….. and viola…. Luann and Tiffany are paired together as roomies. Haha!
Les and Gunther could share a room…. squeeze in two beds. Then Tiffany could have the other one.
If Gun and Les wanted to be chivalrous, they could bunk in the same room and give Tiffany the other one. :)
Drawing…. as usual, a comfortable and pleasant view.
Writing….. in some ways, today’s effort is “ok”. It is not “great” by any means…. but it is not of the “80s mix tape and olives” ilk yet.
In today’s installment, we are apparently seeing that Ooooola and Oops time travel antics have distorted and changed the current day. What was known to them as reality previously has now changed upon their return. This is a common theme in some facets of science fiction…. but in order for it to be successful for the reader there does need to be careful, consistent writing that helps guide the reader along….. and does not only create the “jarring” distortion that an abrupt departure from the previous story provides.
So… the big question is…. will JAS guide us along in a well written, carefully planned fashion so that we as the reader, stay involved and interested in the story? Or, will JAS use the idea of time travel changes simply as a mechanism to allow her to have the characters do whatever idea suddenly pops into JAS’ head…. with no rhyme, no, reason, and no coherence?
Me….. I of course, hope for her to write in a careful, cohesive fashion that keeps us enthused as a reader.
But….. given the current track record….. I have to sadly admit to being very skeptical at this point. I fear that JAS happened to stumble upon the idea of time travel altering the current universe for its characters…. and thought….. gee….. now I can jump back and forth non-stop, with no particular thought….. today…. I see a picture of a spider on Instragram when I woke up, while I ate some hummus for breakfast….. hell…. that would be funny. Lets have Oooola and Oop now travel in the time machine and come back and low and behold Doc is a spider eatim hummus!!!!! That will be a riot!!!!!! Oh! And then the next day I can show a spider wearing an athletic headband, and jamming to an 80s mix tape!!!!! ! Rock on!
